New Screens From The Long Dark Are Dripping With Atmosphere

Indie developer Hinterland has released a handful of new screens for its survival simulation game, The Long Dark.

When we spoke with The Long Dark creator Raphael van Lierop late last year, he stated that he was surprised fans were expecting the game to be scary. Today's colorful screens help separate The Long Dark from horror-oriented survival games, and exhibit a subtle beauty in even the gloomier scenes. The Long Dark was successfully Kickstarted last October, surpassing its $ 200,000 (Canadian) goal with a final funding total of $ 256,217. Van Lierop tells us that he hopes to have the Alpha release ready in the next few months; hopefully the new screens below can tide fans over.

New Screens Show The Danger Of The Banana Peel In Deception IV

Deception IV tasks players with setting traps, one of which is the almighty banana peel.

There are three types of traps in the game, Sadistic, Elaborate, and Humiliating traps. Sadistic traps do the most damage and Elaborate traps are good for setting up combos that bounce your enemies around the room. Humiliating traps are there to embarrass by throwing cakes in people's faces, or, as you can see above, forcing them to slip on a banana peel. You can see more traps in the gallery of screens below, as well as the interface for setting up traps.

Deception IV: Blood Ties comes to PlayStation 3 and Vita on March 25. For more on the game, including an announcement trailer, and some gameplay footage. We recently Super Replayed Trapt, which has a different name than the other Deception games, but falls in the same series.

Seven New Screens Showcase The Marsh From The Witness

A new batch of screens for Jonathan Blow's The Witness shows off new area, The Marsh.

The Marsh is a research facility in the game, which explains the strangely colored algae. In a post on the official blog for The Witness, developer Orsolya Spanyol says the coloring was particularly challenging as, "there was a high risk of making it look like a clown exploded on it." You can check out the screens from the area in the gallery below, or on the-witness.net.

The last big news we heard about The Witness, the next game from the creator of Braid, was it will have virtual reality support thanks to SteamVR. For more on The Witness, head here.

The Witness should be coming to PlayStation 4 and PC this year with an iOS version to follow shortly.
